Captain Cattenaci

Just as the Rangers get back Matia Marcantuoni from a head injury suffered earlier this season, they lose their captain Michael Cattenaci following a check from Owen Sound's Mike Halmo last Saturday. The Captain is out indefinitely with post-concussion symptoms. How will this affect the Rangers psyche? Losing their top-line centre (despite the fact that that's debatable) is going to be a major blow to the team as a whole.

Another major blow? Last night's 3-0 loss to the Sarnia Sting. Now don't get me wrong, the Sting have a great team this year. But having your new top-of-the-line goalie lose to the guy you traded away last summer, especially when the other guy posts a shutout, really sucks. This game was lost quickly in to the first period, with the game winning goal scored at 4:32 of the first, and the sting outshooting the Rangers 12-4.

The team did however play a great game on Thursday in Windsor. Down 3-1 heading in to the third period, the Rangers game back to tie it at 3's and win the game in a shootout. Radek Faksa had the game winning goal.

All in all a fairly quiet week in Ranger land. The biggest news is that either Jonathan Jasper or one Mr. Sudeyko (who i'm sure you all my be familiar with) finally got Captain Cat on Twitter. You can follow him @mcat1091

I eagerly watched the Sting-Rangers' game last night and wait to see Matia Marcantuoni play after missing him in Sarnia last week. I was disappointed in Matia's game and found him virtually unimpressive.

Has this been the case prior to his injury?
